bunch-O-questions exhaust/wheel cleaning

I actually have a couple questions, different topics, but I'll ask them here.

1st any good tricks to keep my dang header collector gaskets from blowing out? I've tried doubling them up, copper gaskets, and about every other oil chenge, it seems I'm changing one.

2nd I just bought a set of Z28 Iroc rims I plan to put on my s-10 Blazer. Whats the best way to polish them up good, I saw some kind of attachment for a drill on t.v., but I'm always wary of any stuff on tv. Also, my blazer currently runs P235-70R15's, and I'd like to go to P235-75R15. What is the difference in these 2 tire sizes, will it affect my speedometer?

Pretty common for collector flages to leak on headers. So few people know you can't over tighten and bend the flanges around the bolts hole area. Once they are bent you can't get a good crush on the paper gasket to keep them from burning thru again. You may have to weld em up.

You tire size isn't big enough to change the speedo more than a few ticks. It's probably off that much anyway.
